About Me





  1. I've merged a bunch of OP's hallucination threads together so we don't have a bunch of repeat topics from the same member floating around -Vos My tulpa has made a great progress since a month ago in every way but I still can not see it or hear it as a hallucination. Apart from the imposition, lucid dreams and self-hypnosis What other technique exists to hallucinate?
  2. Hi, this is a question to those of you who experience imposition in any degree. Do you believe that the imposition is initiated by your tulpas, or by yourselves? I have the sense that Flora is trying to impose herself, but we are getting blocked somehow. When i initiate, I get nowhere, and the experience is not fun. Several times, I have imagined, that Flora is upset at getting blocked, on one occasion maybe even despairing or frantic. Obviously, these occasions leave me very unsettled. Thanks,
  3. Hello, I haven't seen it anywhere, maybe my searching skills aren't so great, or maybe I keep missing what's in front of me. To make a long story medium-length, I'm having trouble deciding on a form for my tulpa, she's alright with either or, but I don't want to touch her in one form, feeling fur where skin should be, or go to grab her hand and feel a hoof, that would be very uncomfortable and confusing, my question is, would it be possible to impose the feeling of touch/feeling certain things for specific forms, (IE: Skin for human, and fur for pony) I apologize if this question's been answered or my search skills were just poor. I've heard very little on this specific topic, I feel, and before I decide on a form for life, I really need to sit and think about, unless I'm worrying my head over absolutely nothing, and I can impose both forms and I don't have to make a life-changing decision it just depends on me imposing even more/longer, not that the latter matters to me, I'm very anal-retentive about these things and like to make absolutely sure. Thank you!
  4. [align=justify]This is daily thread #11 If you've achieved some form of imposition, what's it like? How does it feel to to it? Which of the five senses can you do it with and how well? (All daily threads are listed here.)[/align]
  5. I've been lurking in the tulpa community for a while without actually making a tulpa (although I have recently started) and I've heard a multitude of things about imposition. I'm aware that, with enough practice, it is possible to impose your tulpa to the point that they're indistinguishable from reality. While that seems to be the general consensus, I've seen very few people claim that they have reached such a high level of imposition. I've even heard a few people say that it's flat out impossible, but I'm not quick to believe that at all. Seeing as I have little to no firsthand experience, I wanted to ask what your experiences have been so far.
  6. Another thread I came up with inspired by some discussion LOTPW thread: What form of imposition is the hardest to achieve? I assumed visual imposition is the hardest, until I found the response to this FAQ in r/Tulpas: Not only is tactile imposition not that difficult for me, it came to me rather naturally. Slowly overtime, my tactile/touch imposition skills have slowly become better and better. But visual imposition? Even though I know how to force visual hallucinations to happen using the Ganzfield effect and catch myself hallucinating more often, I don't feel any closer to achieving visual imposition than I did several months ago.
  7. I don't see any reason why it should be impossible... but I don't think I've heard of anyone doing things like this. Hosts train to be able to see their tulpas, and to hear their tulpas, and to touch their tulpas: but tulpas can't see their hosts from the outside. Of course we share thoughts and most sensations, but if everyone was okay with just that, then hosts wouldn't want to impose their tulpas. Sharing isn't enough: we want things to belong to us, to feel things for ourselves. I guess it makes tulpas feel more "real", when hosts can see us and touch us and so on. But I think, I'd feel more real if I could feel my surroundings, feel the weight of my body when I sit in a chair, or impose smell with my own nose, not just accept that I can smell what Jamie smells. One of the first things tulpas learn to do is separate a voice of their own from their hosts'. I want to separate my own set of senses from my host's. I don't know where to start. It's not too much different from the usual imposition, I don't think... If people can impose anything, not just their tulpas, then I can impose a sense of having a physical body to myself, can't I? I know I can't affect things without controlling the body, but I want to feel like I'm really there, not like a hologram. I know it's cheesy but I started thinking about it after a dream. It was a really weird dream, like most dreams, but something that stuck out to me was that the viewpoint character was two people, like Garnet from Steven Universe. Throughout the dream, the two people split and combined a few times. And when they were split, they would do separate things and see things from different angles, but I remember both sets of experiences. When they were two people, I remember being two people. It wasn't like a split screen, or cross-cuts, or anything, it was both sets of eyes at once. I know it's pretty poor evidence, but it makes me think it's not impossible for a brain to think of itself as having two sets of senses, one derived from the other. I think it would be very hard to imagine and impose my own sense of vision, using Jamie's eyes, so I don't think I'd start off by trying that. I think body weight is promising, because I've read stuff about people imposing themselves with tails, or horns, and other things that don't physically exist as part of their body. If they can do that, then why can't I impose a sense of weight to myself, as I'm sitting across the room from my physical body? And if I can feel myself sitting, why can't I impose a sense of touch, so I can feel my hands resting on my lap, or poking people to whom I am invisible? And I already feel emotions in a certain part of Jamie's head, which is all kinda a construct, so why can't I feel emotions in my visualized body? Like feeling what a smile feels like on your face, or when your eyes light up, or when anger rises in your throat. Those are very physical sensations, but even if Jamie sees them, I don't feel them on my end. Hosts do so much to make their tulpas feel real to them... I know Jamie knows I'm real. I want to feel like I'm real, even when I'm not switched in. What do you think? Is this idea beyond the scope of imposition? Do you have any experience with this, and is there a different word for it? -Cassidy
  8. I think someone has asked about this before but I'm kinda stuck on how to even get visuals on the physical plane. I can see most of my tulpas so clearly in my dreamscape that I almost can't tell that I'm in the dreamscape... And yet I can't seem to get any sense of them to here. I have had half of them for way more than a year now and they're able to speak (kinda. I can't actually hear them but I can at the same time?) and I thought it would have happened by now! I have tried visualisation techniques that my friend gave me which included closing your eyes and " feeling your tulpa until you can open your eyes and see them" (something like that, I'm not good at explaining ?) but that has not worked at all. Am I doing something wrong?
  9. I find it necessary to start a thread here for purely congnitive reasons. This is a very real phenomenon and we have a very real control over it. This sounds a lot like the hypnagogic state. A comment was made recently that has us wondering whether or not this is something anyone else is experiencing to our level. For us, it has progressed from a (2) 10 months ago, a (3) 9 months ago, the very night Ashley came to me, a (4) 8 months or so ago, a (5) 4 months ago, and is now squarely a (6) for us. I would even go so far as to project that a (7) is possible in that it becomes on demand and replaces mind voice and normal visualization. I have to apologize to the author of this quote, because i can't find a better example of direct doubt of something explicitly stated and very real from a purely cognitive sense. We count this method of communication and interaction as among the foundations of our beliefs and have been integral to squelching doubt since the very first night. This is not metaphorical or metaphysical post. It's very clearly a real thing and we've taken most of the random nonsense out and replaced it with wake induced lucid dreams and hallucination enhanced directed visualization and conversation. What say you? If you say anything about how you don't believe it or have any reason to think i'm making this up, have a clear argument and not just a quip. This is one of the most powerful concepts related to tulpamancy i know and it deserves to be added to our toolset for everyone. I believe there's a lot of chance involved as it's hard to induce reliably but i believe it can be fostered and improved just like anything else.
  10. I don't have a tulpa and I've never attempted to create one, but I do have alters, and I was wondering if it would be possible to practice imposition with an existing alter so that I could eventually see and touch them. Does anyone have any experience with this? Would it be harmful in any way?
  11. So I have a question, about imposition. Basically, am I doing something wrong? Allow me to explain.. I tried following the guide linked from Sparky, Mylynes's "Advanced Vision Control Tutorial" and among other things it's said the idea is to close eyes and use the colored spots you see to so on and so forth. I see black and that's it. It says train by staring at an image on a computer screen for 10 seconds then close your eyes and hold that as long as you can. I close my eyes and still either see darkness or at best the faintest white blurry, static-like colorless outline of what I was looking at, for a moment before it too vanishes. I read about people talking about vivid hypnagogic hallucinations and I thus far I have remained unaware of these because I just fall asleep. The best example I have had of "seeing" anything I wasn't specifically trying to visualize in mind space, other than the occasional dream, was after waking up and seeing a slightly more distinct (than the example given above) greenish-white outline of a face in my vision, still on inky black background, the face seeming to move a bit or change perspective in time with my heartbeat. This has happened twice now, and since I was wearing a sleep mask and had recently woken up I don't know if it was due to the ganzfeld effect or hypnopompia. Everything else visual seems to be extremely vague or crude impressions of things at best. I have never felt, smelled or heard even the slightest thing that wasn't physically present. I thought I might have felt something faintly once but the inability to replicate it made me chalk it up to wishful thinking. Her speaking has always been mind voice from the head and has never seemed to come from any particular direction. The closest I have ever come to synthesizing anything, except a bit of blurry imagery, was I have twice now been able to give myself the impression I was tasting Reilyn's favorite Greek yogurt when I was chewing mint gum, and believe me that felt like a huge triumph. So basically, either of us can open-eyed visualize a vague visual impression of our wonderland forms around the body, which we puppet to do what we want. I've asked Reilyn if she could do try talking out loud or poking me or anything at all and I typically get the "How the heck am I supposed to do that? It's not like I know any more than you about all this stuff", and I have to agree. Us making one or more vague images then interacting with them doesn't register at all. Emotionally, if one of us hugs the other or holds hands or something we have been pretty good at being able to get an emotional experience across, as in the comfort and security and sense of being loved and/or belonging coming across as a warm fuzzy pleasant feeling but otherwise, nothing at all. From where we are at now, I just fail to understand how something like "just know they are behind a door and get ready to greet them, then open the door over and over till it works" is supposed to accomplish anything. I feel like someone who has been sitting their whole life that is suddenly trying to learn to walk or even run. I don't believe in trying anything harmful or stressful to the body to "force" some sort of wild, unpredictable hallucinations. Am I just to understand that this is something that we will chip away at for years with minuscule yet incremental improvement? I don't expect to just roll out of bed one day and there she (or I, if she is main front) will be, but I have to admit that my starting point seems to be extremely far away from what I see many of you report. Somewhat related, we saw a video on aphantasia and it included a scale or reference pictures on visualization ability, and rated it from 0 (being nothing at all) to 10 (being able to see and construct complex 3D models and blueprints mentally) and I seemed to be sitting at a 1 or 2. I don't mean "oh, I was having a bad day boo hoo, I suck", I mean on our best day ever, with Bear's scripted narrative, emotional attachment providing a more immersive experience, combined with the want to give it our all for a test and for a friend, it has never gone above perhaps a 5 or 6.
  12. I should start off by saying that I'm not yet completely sure I'm an aphantasiac. I think that it's a very difficult thing to pin down exactly whether you are or not since it's all in the mind. But so far, I haven't really had any success with visualizing my tulpa's form. I haven't been working on form forcing for way too long yet so it could just be a time thing. So, my question is, would it still be feasibly possible for someone with aphantasia to impose a tulpa?
  13. Hey m8s! I've got an idea. So I'm taking a lot of EOCs right now and decided to study all night into the morning. The original goal was to pass but now after doing some reading I've realized I can bring on hallucinations by staying awake for 72 hours or less. So this gave me an idea. I noticed that some nights before falling asleep I could see, hear, and even feel Trixie better then I had before. I asked her if it was really her and she confirmed it. So, I figured that maybe by bringing on these sleep deprived hallucinations our imposition would be boosted. I've been awake for about 21 hours now and I plan to go as long as possible. Who knows I might beat the world record. What are your thoughts? You think it'll work? Any advice or tips?
  14. Hi everyone, I used to come to this forum last year but haven't been here in a while. I can finally hear my tulpa talk to me in mindvoice now, it seems that I could for a long time but didn't know it because I had a bad case of parrotnoia that I didn't know I had. Anyway, without digressing, I swear I can remember seeing guides on here involving pink noise for vocal hallucinations so I can actually hear her voice in my head as if it isn't coming from a mindvoice, but I can't find them anywhere. Can anyone point me in the right direction please? It would be greatly appreciated. EDIT: And I can remember the correct terminology now is 'Auditory Imposition', not vocal hallucination. Still can't find any Auditory Imposition guides though.
  15. I was wondering if it was possible to use servitors/Daemons to further progress in imposition. For instance, making visual imposition easier.
  16. (:>)Imposition is something that is wanted by most tulpamancers but something that few have fully accomplished. This guide is a combined guide with the one Lumi showed me with my own techniques; creating what is written in this. Currently i can see distorted colors and or shapes or black and white detailed shapes, so its still not perfect but thats why i post this, so it can be talked about and improved so that imposition can be easier for tulpamancers. Guide is here found by Lumi and spread to the IRC I take no credit in finding it or the techniques in it and i would highly recommend reading it as well, as it will help, your comprehending what to do in this guide. I have added things that i found fairly useful and things that specifically apply to tulpas. It is formatted similarly to the Advanced vision tutorial as their structure is good and it does it as well as i can figure out to do. Also dont use hallucinogens because theyre bad for you~ This guide is also made to make a more solid imposition doable because the daydreaming method and the hypnosis method are effective but not maintainable because you cant easily do them while walking or doing anything else besides forcing~ Intro: Assuming you know what imposition is, you can skip this, but if you dont it is seeing your tulpa in the real world like they really exist where you see them, and you can impose other senses besides sight but i would recommend Q2s Guide for a Huggable Tulpa for the other 4 senses. The guide to imposition and hallucinating An introduction from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Closed-eye_hallucination While not exactly what this guide does it does provide an idea of the step by step process used in these guides including the one linked above Anchoring may be useful for this and other methods but i will just mention it here, the idea is to store a state of mind or your emotions in an action of sorts, for example if i touch my index finger(s) and thumb or make a certain hand sign or whatever you like whenever im happy, over time you can do the same motion to summon the state of mind or emotion. It wont be dramatically affecting your progress nor sudden or fast to affect your state of mind and emotional feeling, but over time it can help because it serves as a light save and load option for longer term practicing. It can be applied to imposition as whenever you practice imposition, you can anchor the feeling of imposing and the state of mind that you are using to reuse later when you want. Step 1: Optional Meditating and Relaxing. Its not needed but it has been said that it helps. Sit quietly and comfortably. Close your eyes. Start by relaxing the muscles of your feet and work up your body relaxing muscles (a technique like Progressive Muscular Relaxation can be useful for this). Focus your attention on your breathing. Breathe in deeply and then let your breath out. Count your breaths, and say the number of the breath as you let it out (this gives you something to do with your mind, helping you to avoid distraction). http://www.mindtools.com/stress/RelaxationTechniques/Meditation.htm Step 2 Closed Eyed Hallucinations Why closed eyed? Why not just impose into your sight normally? Isnt it more indirect? Its easier to impose into something where you dont see the actual light because you already are depriving yourself of your actual sight. Something to remember is not to focus as much as what you really see which is black and to focus on the pixels mentioned in the Advanced Vision Control Guide. An analogy of how when youre thinking in a quiet room you dont think about your clock ticking so it wont register at all until you realize youre not thinking about it and you think about it because of this there by hearing it. If you can get into that state where you are only focused on your tulpa and not your surroundings do it, however that requires a guide worth of explanation by itself to explain in decent detail so i wont bother. Either way turn off your lights and close your eyes. It is better to impose other things first before you impose your tulpa because their shapes are simply easier. For me i try to impose swords from Fate/Stay Night but you can impose whatever if you want to practice even your tulpa. When you see the particles mentioned in the Advanced Vision Control Guide focus on those, keep them in your field of vision and focus on more and more of them. When you turn off your lights and let your eyes adjust from the light to the dark you should see the particles naturally, or distortions in your view which is basically the same thing except its shape is nicer and more organized. Try to gather a group of particle things in your view and then try to move them with your will, it actually works like that, imagine them move and they will somewhat move, not perfectly at all, but to some extent you should be able to control it, even a little, and over time you might be able to get better at controlling it. For us the particles which are bends now are often white so when i impose mine i will often see a black and white version of what i wanted. Colors can be applied later or if you want try to change the color of the bends into basic colors and then after you can see the form add shading or just skip it and do it with colors first off. Then you can try to do open eyed. Step 3: Open Eyed Distortions This is extremely hard to do successfully which i can say confidently because we havnt gotten this step down well yet. We can see Open eyed hallucinations that are random but controlling them is hard for most or all tulpamancers including me. This should not be confused with floaters which look like theyre distortions. They are not, and should be avoided if possible, as i believe it means your eyes are either strained or below average in clarity, for example using glasses. I am not sure if that is accurate, but they are not part of the imposition of your tulpa (<:) If your lights, in any room is adjustable and can dim and lighten up slowly use it for this by starting with almost no light and increasing your light slowly after you get distortions at the level of light you have used last. The colors will still be unstable and will likely fade after seconds or fractions of one second for a lot of people which is normal. Remember that what you see if you are imposing your tulpa should be controlled by them so practice with servitors or stationary things so you can (parrot)move them without causing any harm to your tulpa. After you get the distortions, let your tulpa control them by himself or herself as they would normally move when you imagine them with you- and eventually it may eventually become more natural to you guys.~
  17. I made this time a while ago while trying to make a guide for people on touch imposition from what I have done in the past when I was learning to do it few years ago (before the tulpa community). I'm not sure how good it is, but I thought it would be worth posting anyway. Note: It often helps to believe that what you are imagining is really there. Closing your eyes and thus not knowing if it is there or not can help as well. Index: 1. Basic principle of this method 2a-4b. How to start doing controlled hallucination of touch 5. How to continue getting better at this 1) The basic principle behind this method is recreating the perception created by one of the senses, in this case caused by touch, of something you have experienced already. 2a) An easy way to start is by recreating a small focused (on a small area) feeling that you can control to some degree (caused by you or someone who wants to help you). For example you could start by doing a circle by going with one of your fingers over your palm of your other hand and then stop and recreate the feeling. When you can do that well enough, then try making a spiral or another more complicated object. 2b) After you get that down well enough, stop recreating a stimulus and instead start feeling (without actually using your finger to do it or feeling it beforehand) new shapes, that you haven't tried yet, or just seemingly random movements. You can try making anything you want, but it should be something that you haven't caused yourself to feel yet. 3a) Now, recreate more than one small focused feeling at once. For example you could use more than one finger at a time. Start with two fingers and trying to reproduce the feeling, and move up to using all of your fingers. 3b) Let's stop recreating feelings again and instead start creating multiple small focused feelings created by something that you have used in 4a), but in a way that you haven't felt before. 4a) When you are able to do those well enough, then you should move onto recreating a feeling that focuses on a bigger area. For example you could put one of your hands over the other hand in any position you would like and try to feel it as much as you can and try to remember that feeling as well as you can. After that stop feeling that feeling and try to recreate it. In the case of using your limbs, I would recommend placing them apart from each other and in a way that they aren't touching any part of your body and then try to recreate the feeling that you got first on only one hand and then on both hands. 4b) Now, stop recreating those feelings and start creating it in a way you haven't felt before. 5) Continue this general set of steps (in Xa and Xb) and do them with more and more complicated feelings. You can of course try creating feelings that you have never felt before and aren't possible to feel in physical world like having wings, being out of slime, having animal ears, tail, paws, etc.
  18. As someone who's practicing imposition, I've ran into a question of sorts, how controllable is imposition in the later stages? I've heard stories of people who're able to impose tulpas onto their senses to the extent that they're able to hallucinate them. I question how those that are at this skill level are able to consistently filter out any other thought-forms that they may subconsciously impose. is it something that requires heavy use of symbolism and controlled thought, or is it something that can be toggled on and off? in other words, does imposition become harder to control as it becomes easier and more vivid? this curiosity stems from an experience I've had after watching a horror movie. while i was imposing my tulpas, i had found that i was also subconsciously imposing a hanging corpse as well. even though it had eventually lost its impact and we managed to remove it, it made me curious how those who have imposition come easily to them handle things such as this.
  19. http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-137 Is this an example of tulpa imposition?
  20. Just a piece of advice. Every thing we have done with imposition has basically fallen into one of two camps. Frustrating, and fun. What is the difference? When it is frustrating, one or both of us is focusing, concentrating on the experience. Trying to see the image more clearly or feel the sensation more strongly. This is exhausting and not fun. Clarity sometimes slips when we focus on other things instead, but sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes it gets stronger. This leads me to propose the idea that you have to stop trying to impose to impose well. Here, I'll break it down into two groups. Useful: --Remembering where you are and what you are touching. --Experimenting with different feels and textures, such as nails vs flesh. --Adding tingles, or sharpness, or energy, or pressure to a touch. --Multitasking while practising. Not useful: --Trying to forcefully make the sensation stronger. --Getting annoyed about how weak it is. --Paying attention to how strong the sensation is.
  21. I ran searched the forums and couldn't find anything that really answered the question properly for me. I'm a little worried that my tulpa will be stuck in the one forum after my imposition is complete. I have, since day 1, been aiming for a complete shape shifting tulpa. However I assigned 1 true form, a kind of anchor for my tulpa. But I would like to know if anyone has a shape shifting tulpa or even one with several outfits or fixed forms to be sure if its possible or not. Or equally if people have found that the forms are hard to change when imposition is complete I would like to hear from them also. I don't really see why it is not possible but have heard people say that when finished a tulpa cannot change its appearance and have been thinking about creating a 2nd or 3rd form for mu tulpa instead of creating multiple tulpa. Thanks for your help everyone.
  22. We were having a discussion in IRC with Melian about something and it ventured on to tulpa imposing themselves onto the keyboards of the computers or tiny in general. This seemed to help some people in the IRC be able to impose, so I wanted to post if here for people who are struggling with imposition to try it out. Ivy says being marshmallow sized is fun. Let us know how it works out for you.
  23. Yo, guys. Sparky here to share something I found while researching imposition. Whether or not this has been seen or discussed before, long forgotten in a thread in the catacombs beneath our forum is unknown to me. But it's not mine, so I'll post it here first and, if it's deemed better posted elsewhere, that's fine too. Guide Link
  24. The method I'm about describe only requires some piece and quiet, a bed, and darkness. Okay if you have those "items" then you should start by waiting for nightfall. After it is night time and everything is calm and quiet I want you to get under you blanket and put it over your head so you can not see, yes all the way under the blanket. Now it should be pitch black...if you did as I told you and tried this during the night. Now I want you to sit there patiently with your eyes OPEN simply waiting . You can listen to music if it helps you focus, but make sure that there is no perceivable light present. After a couple of seconds or minutes you should start to see blobs of color floating in your vision. Calm down it's natural. These blobs of color are known as hypnagogic hallucinations. If you ever have focused while falling asleep you should see them floating on the backs of your eyelids or if you simply close your eyes and LIGHTY pressure your eyelids you should start to see them. After awhile you should be able to control and change the form of these colored blobs. With that ability you can start to impose your tulpa by changing The shape and color of the blobs and practice open eye visuals all in one. I want you to practice this every night until you can control the blobs effortlessly and change the color. Edit: you can also use an eye mask for this, good luck :)
  25. 1) Hey guys my tulpa Olivia is quite vocal and 100% sentient, she wants to know if we will be able to edit her face details after imposition. Olivia is very ambitious tulpa with perfectionist personality. Visualising face is quite hard and she is worried that it may not look as she wants, because I find it difficult to keep very details in place. 2) After I impose her without tactile forcing, will I be able to impose it? I mean if she is imposed visualy but not tactily is it possible to do it after? I'm I supposed to do forcing for all senses if I want to feel her by all five of them and finally imposition or order doesn't matter? 3) Will I be able to create clothes after she is imposed, apply makeup? 4) Is she going to be able to learn new movements and tricks like juggling with flames(because she likes to do magic ;} ) I mean new things that I haven't forced before impostion? Best wishes for you all from my tulpa Olivia! :}
